Which GOP ticket is being nominated, exactly? Is it the one compromised of two men who have done everything but lick the boots (at least not that I know of) of radical anti-choicers such as the Americans United for Life, the Family Research Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List? Or is it the kinder, gentler ticket that only wants to imprison women who terminate a pregnancy not conceived in rape?
In 2007, Mitt Romney happily embraced one of the proponents of fanciful reproductive biology and a “father” of the “legitimate rape,” uh… theory.
If you are curious who is worried about their reelections, watch who is publicly denouncing the Missouri congressman’s “legitimate rape” remarks.
Calls are mounting for Missouri Representative Todd Akin to resign. But is it really best for women’s rights if he does so?
According to the presidential contender, his ticket supports allowing rape victims to terminate their pregnancies. Did he check with his running mate?
Paul Ryan’s relatively small family and Mitt Romney’s quite large one reveal the reproductive minefields for Republican candidates who presumably are expected to show obedience, in their personal lives, to the party’s extremist platform.
This election is about choice. A big choice.
When all else fails, Romney’s ready to focus on religion. But will that backfire, too?
A new ad from the Obama campaign reiterates Romney’s position against helping women access contraception.
Having it both ways on choice has always been Romney’s style.
